What Is Spinal Stenosis?

What Is Spinal Stenosis?

This event, “spinal stenosis” or “lumbar stenosis” is the result of the narrowing of the canal in the middle of the mentioned spinal bones and results in complaints due to the collective squeezing of the nerves originating from the spinal cord passing just through there. Other than pain in the waist and legs, the main complaint of patients is the contraction type of ache in the legs when walking for a short distance that prevents the patient from walking; and the patient has to constantly walk leaning forward from the waist. This problem is more likely to occur in older ages that doctors classify as “geriatric”. Geriatric Neurosurgery? Why not…

There is no other treatment for this problem except surgery. However, the patient may have “minimally invasive surgery” as the doctors say (or “closed surgery”, “bloodless surgery”) through a needle at a very low risk; “microsurgery” or low-risk surgical interventions made through a small cut; or if these are not a solution, it may be necessary to do “fusion surgery”, “instrumentation”.
